20:18 12 August Kyiv, Ukraine

In Russia, a covert so-called industrial mobilization of companies and enterprises of the defense sector is being carried out.

This was reported by the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

It is noted that since the beginning of August, Rostec has introduced a ban on vacations for the entire management team and a significant part of the workforce. In some companies that are part of Rostec, the "transfer of leave for an indefinite period" applies to 100% of employees.

The structure of the Rostec company includes more than 800 companies and enterprises of various industries. The corporation's portfolio includes up to 40% of the total state defense order and priority civilian programs.

In addition, the military-industrial commission of the Russian Federation, headed by Vladimir Putin, is preparing changes to the program of the state defense order of the Russian Federation for 2022, which provide for an increase in spending by 600-700 billion rubles.. Approval of the changes is expected in early September.

As noted in the GUR, the introduction of similar measures at other defense enterprises of the Russian Federation is expected in the near future.

It is reported that the cancellation of vacations is also associated with an attempt to fully control the movement of personnel of defense enterprises. First of all, the leadership, against the backdrop of recent high-profile cases on charges of treason against certain representatives of the scientific community of the Russian Federation.
